. i want to get some of your thoughts around healthcare cost overall. question today, rising healthcare costs accumulating with fiscal liabilities represent significant challenge. >> our obligations for providing quality and affordable health care for our city employees without jeopardizing the city's fiscal solvency is a priority of mine in the challenge that we have to take together. this year will spend 574 million dollars for the health care of our current employees retirees and dependents, about seven point eight percent of our city spending. in addition to annual bending for healthcare we have an equally significant issue on the horizon. the unfunded cost of paying for healthcare for all current employees once they retire. last november 2012 the city assessed our retiree health-care obligations an estimated the unfunded liability to be 4.4 billion dollars. over the past several years we have taking a number of important steps to address the structural budget issues associated with employee benefits in healthcare. in 2008 the city passed proposition c, charter amendment

programs on the horizon and healthcare reform upheld, 2013 should be smooth sailing for the economy, right? to almost no one's surprise, it's not that simple. despite that, in our cover story, we found a few people willing to stick their necks out and share with us their predictions. most everyone we found had reason for measured optimism. housing prices, for example, are going up. "there's hope that you can climb out. that's just a game- changer." and that opens up housing- related investment, which in turn may help stocks. "i see certain sectors helping the stock market. i see that true of the housing sector. look at real estate, look at building supplies, things that have been down in the past." as for jobs, john challenger says though the economy has been adding an average of 150,000 jobs a month, we may not need that many to make unemployment itself go down. the reason - baby boomers. "there are many more baby boomers retiring, so we don't need nearly as many new jobs as we did a decade ago." as for overseas trade, china's economy is predicted to grow at 7%. it used to be 15%.
